The Lyrics

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HUm15jxuMvM&feature=fvst

You know that it's a big blue spruce
It's hung with lights and stars all wired
Flip the switch, apply the juice
Stir us with your best attire

Come on Barry, light that wire
Come on Barry, light that wire
Try to make the plight less dire

It's time to celebrate the yule
It's time for solemn hymns and choirs
Time to heed the golden rule
Though our run of luck may soon expire

Come on Barry, light that wire
Come on Barry, light that wire
Try to get us all inspired, yeah

[Very Long Instrumental Break]

The climb of deficits, it looms
The guys in power all perspire
Strife that leads us to our doom
Such a stubborn bunch of goons we've hired

Come on Barry, light that wire
Come on Barry, light that wire
Drive to get it right desired, yeah

You know there's been some awful news
You know that action is required
Mitigate the nation's blues
Spurn the load of debt acquired

Come on Barry, light that wire
Come on Barry, light that wire
Try to stem the tide of ire
Try to be a knight admired
Try to use your might, inspire
Try to make the plight less dire

"Stubborn bunch of goons we've hired", indeed. Too bad we can't fire them for their poor performance. Now. Two more years is too long. Forget term limits, we need recall. The Christmas tree ceremony you depict here is the modern equivalent of Nero playing his lute while Rome burns. (Congress is preying on our loot).

Barry may be lighting up palm trees this year as he is headed to Hawaii soon. Godd plea for sanity with this one.

I think the golden rule would be lovely this time of year. Sadly, those who rule are not golden.

Some really good word-matches to the OS here. And very timely in more ways than one.
